Lisa Ling's harrowing report on heroin addiction in Chicago

On Sunday Oct. 16, Lisa Lang, on her “This Is Life” series, presented “The Black and White of Heroin: The Poisoning of America”, link

 The most harrowing part of the episode show a young white woman, living alone in a slum apartment in Chicago, and apparently kicked out by her parents, waiting with Lisa there for her fix to be delivered to the dealer.  She has but $50 to her name.  She had been an honor student in high school but had fallen off the cliff somehow.  She injects her own fix during the show.
